Okay so I've been back and forth between a few forums and blogs and tutorials. I can't seem to get my HDMI output working on my alienware m14x r1. I have the nvidia gt55 card as well as an intel hd integrated card. I would like to have some sort of optimus setup and have the hdmi connected with my monitor. I've seen many articles on installing the proprietary drivers which I've done but I seem to screw something up somewhere and suddenly I get a blank screen on reboot. Upon further investigation it telling me that lightdm isn't starting up correctly. If anyone has gotten it working on the 1st gen alienware m14x I would love somewhat of a walkthrough.
